MONDAY, AUGUST 19th


Ace of Wands. Sometimes life is about thinking and planning. Other times, it's about taking action to start new projects. Guess which agenda is in your best interest right now? Today marks the kick off to a major period of creativity in your life. Keep your eyes open for fresh inspiration and new opportunities. Grow, baby, grow!

Four of Swords. Sometimes we're meant to forge ahead despite signs to the contrary. Other times, not so much. The appearance of the Four of Swords suggests that it's the latter, not the former, for you today. Right now, it's imperative for you to heal from whatever's been bothering your body and soul. Your mission: find balance by detaching from the everyday world.

The Tower. If you've been building on shaky ground, today brings the opportunity to rebuild on solid foundation. It's never fun to start over, but it's better than giving up. Look for a new beginning after a painful ending that may have left you shaken, not stirred. Remember, the only way up is through.

Queen of Cups. The Queen of Cups wants you to know that if there was ever a time to get all swoony over art, beauty, and love, that time is now. So, what are you waiting for? Go forth and spread the joy. Even better: find ways to nurture your nearest and dearest so they'll be swooning over you.

Seven of Cups. Overindulging in thoughts of what the future may bring? While sweet dreams may be made of these, today it's time to get real. Use your fantasies for what they are: a roadmap to change your life for the better. Move forward and rejoin the world. Otherwise, your head may remain in the clouds.

King of Cups. When the King of Cups appears, he's telling us to get real with our artistic dreams: what do you really *really* want? If there was ever a time to combine inspiration with the realities of the marketplace, today is it. Alternately, the King of Cups can symbolize someone who represents the highest balance of artistic integrity and worldly influence. They've made their way in the world. So can you. What can they teach you?

Queen of Pentacles. Mama Earth is calling. She's asking you to take stock of ways to create a more harmonious home. Whether your answer involves nurturing your family, redecorating your bedroom, planting a garden, or taking a luxurious bubble bath, it's time to plain do it. Your challenge today: Find ways to increase your peace.

The Lovers. Ooooh la la! The Lovers invites you to look for a renewed awareness of the nature of passionate love. How can you best experience it? You may find love in another person. Or you may find it through contemplating the world's bounty. Better yet, find it in yourself: take the time to be your own best friend. After all, if you don't love yourself, who will?

Five of Cups. It's easy to cry over spilt milk when others have disappointed us: "Why aren't they are responsible or as loving as I am? Don't they know how they're bumming me out?" Your challenge today is to examine what's left in the glass. Is it half-full or half-empty? Either way, use what's there to replenish yourself. It's better than succumbing to sorrow.

Six of Swords. Things aren't as bad as they seem. Really. Today, keep your eyes open for information to help you move beyond your current limitations. Is there a point of view you haven't considered? Or a class or book that might help you learn new skills? Alternately, a quick trip from home may help you gain some distance from whatever's been troubling you. Time to see the forest for the trees.

Seven of Swords. Feeling vulnerable? Rest assured you're not imagining things: there is a definite need for caution today. So go forth and gather your weapons just in case. However, don't go too far: be defensive, not aggressive. Otherwise those weapons could be used against you.

Five of Pentacles. How wealthy are you really? That's the challenge posed for you by the Five of Pentacles. On the surface you may be frustrated by a lack of ka-ching right now: not enough resources, a disappointing business opportunity. However, what's really going on in your bank account may reflect something entirely different. Your challenge today: take stock of what truly nurtures you. A pile of gold means little if we're emotionally impoverished.
